It's 500 years in the future and a mad cow like disease called Bent Head has killed off most of the US population Those remaining turn to magic and sacrifice to cleanse the Earth Wonderblood is Julia Whicker's fascinating literary debut set in a barren United States an apocalyptic wasteland where warring factions compete for control of the land in strange Wonderblood by Julia Whicker is a dystopian fantasy read set in the distant future where a disease has wiped out most of the population Those left on Earth fight to survive as they await the return of the space shuttles at Cape Canaveral that will signal the cleansing of the planetI have to say this is one of those books I start out reading and then think what the heck have I gotten myself into Total weirdness from page one is what I got The book starts with the talk of how everyone seems to like to behead people and what they do with those heads But the sad thing to say I don’t blink at this but I get to where Aurora thinks she’ll survive eating the seagulls and then I get disgusted and think not the seagullsSo anyway now we know how I ended up with the weirdness to begin with The story starts off pretty slowly as we wade through the decapitated victims and meet Aurora what has been with her brother’s carnival Another carnival shows up to take the land and next we know Aurora is captured by Mr Capulatio who is a total creeper and of course thinks he’ll be ruling the world with Aurora as his ueenAs the story went on I started thinking I wonder if the author is from a legalized marijuana state maybe got the idea from The Walking Dead where the survivors now are constantly at battle as if getting 90% of the world wiped out isn’t enough The characters in here all sort of have Negan’s kill first ask uestions later attitude with the idea of spilling blood to save the worldThen we get to learning how everyone worships at Cape Canaveral and I actually found this a really creative idea I imagine that over the course of 500 years the idea that we once went into space before the world became ill and the disease hit would be just what some nutty person needed to create the blood obsessed world it had becomeBy the time I got to the end of this one though I was back to scratching my head The potential of the idea to me really didn’t get played out as well as I hoped that it would and after wading through all the craziness and mayhem I felt a tad disappointed with the end leaving me to rate this book at 25 starsI received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalleyFor reviews please visit

Julia Whicker æ Wonderblood ePub

WonderbloodRl named Aurora is taken captive as his bride and forced to join his band on their journey to Cape Canaveral As war nears she must decide if she is willing to become her captor's ueen But then other ueens emerge some grotesue and others aggrieved and not all are pleased with the girl's ascent Politics and survival are at the centre of this ravishing novel Wonderblood by Julia Whicker is beautifully written but the story feels very confusing to meHonestly I tried to love this book I was blown away with Julia's writing style and was absolutely memorized While I read the first couple of chapters my mind was utterly blown I was so pumped to continue reading but the story and plot line got confusing and messy This book was an interesting dystopian paranormal fantasy twist The carnival and the dystopian future vibes were really cool and amazing ideas There was also ridiculous amounts of gore with people being chopped away due to war and brutality With all that in mind I didn't really see where the plot or character development was It felt like a gore fest through the eyes of a marvelous writer It was just kind of weird for me It felt like the vibe was Games of Thrones meets The Walking Dead but throw in lots of carnivals and I Am Legend In summary I was definitely not the audience for this book It just didn't work for meI do recommend this book if you love books like Games of Thrones for the brutality and backstorylore or if you love uniue and incredible stylized writing Two out of Five StarsI received this book for free through Goodreads First Reads
